Emergency services attend Hwy. 3 crash.

Traffic slowed for crash which sent one vehicle off the road.

The Keremeos Fire department is on the scene of a collision involving a car and a motorhome on Highway 3 about 20 km west of Keremeos.

Emergency crews were called to the scene at about 12:30 p.m. to extricate the male driver of the vehicle. Keremeos Review editor Tara Bowie reports there appear to be no injuries to the family in the motorhome, which was towing an ATV and headed west, while the car was headed east.

The front driver’s side of the car struck the left side of the trailer towing the ATV, and ended up off the roadway. RCMP and Emergency Health Services are also on scene.

Traffic is down to one lane on the highway, with firefighters doing traffic control.
